7429. RETALIATION, Governor Hamilton's case.—

I hope you will ascribe the
advice of the [Governor's] Council [confining
Governor Hamilton], not to want of attention
to the sacred nature of public conventions, of
which I hope we shall never, in any circumstances,
lose sight, but to a desire of stopping
the effusion of the unoffending blood of women
and children, and the unjustifiable severities
exercised on our captive officers and soldiers
in general, by proper severities on our part.—
To Sir Guy Carleton. Ford ed., ii, 256.
